(the same old story - London, London, London)

Very interesting propaganda film made for distribution to Commonwealth countries to show that the mother country is coping with all the air-raids and disruption. This version front-ended by an intro from Aus PM:

go off to work in their various jobs - judge, telephone engineer, taxi driver, posh shop assistant etc - despite various air raid disruptions. Very stilted scenes and obvious actors with posh accents instead of ordinary people, but still fascinating.
